About me

I am an experienced BACP Accredited and Registered Psychotherapist/Counsellor, delivering  professional therapy services to adults and couples from my practice   (Rutland House Counselling & Psychotherapy Ltd) based in Leicester City Centre. To view the practice website, please visit  www.rhcp.org.uk

About Me

My main theoretical orientation is Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, over the years I have completed further training to enhance my therapeutic skills which include training in Dialectical Behavioural therapy (DBT), Transactional Analysis, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), and a specialism of working with Trauma.

I have over 10 years’ experience of working as a Psychotherapist and Counsellor in the voluntary, educational, corporate and private sectors.   I have experience of working with clients both long and short term and I am an associate Counsellor for many Employment Assistance Providers (EAP) which involves working with employees struggling with work related issues.

I am a Director of a thriving private practice in Leicester City called Rutland House Counselling and Psychotherapy Ltd and I am experienced in managing a large team of therapists and making clinical recommendations.

I offer an initial consultation, which is also an opportunity to assess whether my style of working is for you. My aim is to help individuals and couples address the causes of their problems, reduce symptoms and move forward in life.I can work with most issues including relationship difficulties, low self-esteem and confidence, unresolved childhood issues, abuse, body image issues, anger management, depression, anxiety, stress and work-place difficulties.

I can genuinely say I really love the job I do and feel very passionate about my profession,and most importantly I know therapy is an effective method for positive change. I am a qualified clinical Supervisor which enables me to supervise the clinical practice of both trainees and experienced counsellors/Psychotherapists.

I enjoy making a positive contribution to my profession and I am appointed as an Executive Board Member of British Association for Counselling and psychotherapy (BACP) private practice division.
